As we get closer and closer to UFC 200 on July 9th, reports of potential matchups have begun to emerge. In addition, fighters are calling each other out hoping to talk themselves into a spot on what many expect to be the biggest event in the history of the UFC.

It was reported on Fox Sport 1’s “UFC Tonight” that the UFC is targeting a bout between former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and top ranked heavyweight contender Travis Browne.

Velasquez, who lost his heavyweight championship to Fabricio Werdum at UFC 188 back in June, was slated to have a rematch with ‘Vai Calvao at UFC 196, however both men ultimately withdrew from the bout.

Browne on the other hand is coming off a controversial TKO win over Matt Mitrione earlier this year. The win returned ‘Hapa’ to the win column after suffering a TKO loss at the hands of Andrei Arlovski at UFC 187.
